Brenda get yourself a hot toddy and go to bed, if that doesn't work would you like me to come and rub your chest with some goose grease ?

My head changes more than the weather sick of colds brenda old age and dry rot thats me age these days .

Posted by: Anne (3404)  Report abuse
I really can't remember when I last had a cold. One or two have tried to get a grip but failed. I have read somewhere children and teens develop more colds than the elderly because ageing develops more defence.

Are you sure it's not hayfever?
Lots suffering with it at present.

Posted by: momac (9466)  Report abuse
I don't normally suffer with hay fever,but this last couple of days I've been forever blowing my nose and rinsing my eyes with cold water. I could hardly see they were that sore,it can't be anything else but the pollen.

Eating onions and garlic can stave off colds because they naturally contain anti-oxidents and other important nutrients. It's been about 7 years since I had a cold and before that it was about 6 years. Check out garlic and onions on the internet if you don't believe me. Most of my cooking, which I do from scratch, contains at least one or both of these ingredients.

Same here, Ann, mine started Thursday and still struggling to shake it off, feels like it's been sandpapered. Also turned into that 'hacking' cough that really hurts! I think I'm fallin't bits as well. It's not man-flu, though, so I should just about live.

Posted by: kayleigh (1161) Report abuse
